It’s not uncommon for me to get into trouble for bringing my work home and/or doing work in my free time. I can’t help it. I just need to make sure my team are okay, that things in the town where I work are okay and there is not going to be any surprises when I turn up for work the next day. I bet Montalto’s Winemaker, Simon Black’s doesn’t get any grief if he takes his work home and, I don’t reckon my wife would complain if my work involved this excellent Pinot Noir.
Bright, dark cherry aromas with a hint of herbs too. Fresh and juicy on the palate provided by dark cherries, a slightly plummy influence brings mid palate richness and a lovely touch of spice. There is plenty of flavour and intensity, yet it has elegance and remains beautifully varietal. Tannins and a touch of acid are perfectly in balance to ensure a good future and it has terrific length (understatement!). I am a Pinot Noir fan and this is an absolute beauty!
